Looking for Ancestors of Thomas J. Isaacs of Kentucky

I am searching for the ancestors of Thomas J. Isaacs who married Mary Fant and had one son, Charles Walter, of Kentucky. Charles married Ellen Louisa Purdy and they raised several children. My father was John Clifton who married Ardis Marie Fernquist.

The parents of Thomas J. were Jacob Isaacs and Rebecca Bowman.

Jacob's parents were Godfrey Isaacs and Kiziah Johnson.

Godfrey's parents were Samuel Isaacs and Nancy Baldridge

Samuel's parents were Godfrey Isaacs and Sarah (possibly Ashby or Ashley)

Godfrey Isaacs parents were Samuel Isaacs/Isaacks Jr (died 1760) and his parents were Samuel Isaacs/Isaacks Sr. (died 1750). They lived in Frederick Co. Va in the 1740's. They were probably of Scotch/Irish/Welsh heritage. To date, first known records were in Frederick Co. VA. They sailed probably from Wales, not sure on port of entry.

Looking for Isaacs family of VA, KY, and NE

Since my last posting of a year ago, I believe I have unraveled the direct lineage of my Isaacs family to their arrival in America. I discovered this through many other Isaacs researchers and through siblings of Samuel Isaacs, Jr., so I believe at this time that the following is the lineage. I have details for anyone who wants them.

Samuel Isaacs, Sr. born in Scotland approximately 1685, died 1750.
Samuel Isaacs, Jr. born 1710, died 1760
Godfrey Isaacs married to Sarah Ashby, born about 1735
Samuel Isaacs married to Nancy Baldridge, born about 1773
Godfrey Isaacs married to Kizzah Johnson, born 1794
Jacob Isaacs married to Rebecca Bowman, born 1810
Thomas J. Isaacs married to Mary Fant, born 1847(also known as
Charles Wright in Nebraska)
Charles Walter Isaacs, married to Louisa Ellen Purdy, born 1874
John Clifton Isaacs, married to Ardis Marie Fernquist, born 1914
Barbara Lee Isaacs, married to Richard Lee McGee, born 1943

If there are other researchers who are also studying this Isaacs line, please post or get in touch with me. I have a lot of information on the families of each of the names, except Samuel Sr. and Samuel Jr.
